Letters to our mother: Asa, Aedan and Adelle Asika

Posted on


To my dear Mother,

Adenike Asika, who was taken away from me on the 5th of September 1997. Not a day goes by that I don’t wish you were here. The thought alone that you’re above watching over keeps me going. On this special day for mothers, I thank you and remember the times we had together, however short. You were such a great person that till today people still talk about, the great Nike who humbled Osi. As I remember you and everyone who has ever filled any void created by your demise, I want to tell you how much I miss and love you. My dear sister Adelle has become a lot like you, feisty but caring as my father will say.

May you continue to rest in perfect peace.



Mummy, not a day goes by that I do not think about you. You’ve been gone since I was 7 but I still remember our last days together like it was yesterday. Knowing that you’re in a better place keeps me going all the time. Today being Mothers Day, I say thank you for everything dear mother. I hope you’re proud of the man I have become. You are still with us. I know that through your daughter who is basically a duplicate of you!
Love you more than words can justify, continue to rest in perfect peace, till we see again.

Your son,
Asa Bolutife Asika


Dear Mum,
Mothers’ day has always been a hard day for me I think mainly because you aren’t here for us to physically celebrate. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about you, what it would be like to have you here but nothing gives me joy like people telling me I look like you or that I behave just like you. It’s tough for us knowing that you aren’t here to witness major achievements and be a part of our lives but we believe that you are in heaven smiling down at us happy at how much we have grown because everything we do is to make you proud and knowing that we have succeeded brings us peace. You might not be here to celebrate with us today but Happy Mothers’ day to our angel, we love you more than you can ever imagine. Continue to rest in peace.

Loads of love.

Your daughter,
